I just got a pair of Superstar series 2 size 10.5 US from an Ebay store. These are my first series 2 kicks and they feel slightly smaller than for instance Superstars wd and Adicolor.
Is this coincidence or tend series 2 kicks to be smaller than other Adidas series?

2's fit a little tighter around the foot because of the padded tongue... wait till you try a superstar skate Wink

So would you recommend going up half a size when buying Series 2 as a general rule?
What about them skates? Are these even tighter than Series 2?

Unfortunatly there is no hard and fast rule when it come to superstar fitting, some 2's (as well as 1's and vintage) fit differenly to others.. I have some in an 8.5, a 9 and a 9.5.. your best bet is to try them on first - if it's possible.
Skates, although well padded, are quite roomy and so you can stick to your usual size or even drop a half..

Thanks, I see. unfortunately not easy to try the ones form EBay or any other web shop. Does any other have experience regarding this issue? How do you generally pick your sizes when buying from the net? Does some series generally come smaller or bigger than other series?

I always buy the same size and rarely experience any problems with the exception of Ultrastars, they seem to fit a little small so I'd recommend going up half a size if buying any of these.

Since you´re from Norway, why don´t you just come to my store and check out the skates then? Wink

Anyone know how the caviars fit? I found a good price on a pair in a US 10.5 or 11.5, NO 11s!!! I usually wear an 11 in Supes. I wear a 10.5 in centenials, all zx models (just got a zx800 that I could have used a 10 in) all nikes etc... I wear a 10.5 in all those. Ive tried on a couple 10.5 supes and they just fir way too small. Even my uu11 vin olive green camo ones fit a little snug. Im so confused.But I want these, and I fear an 11.5 will look and feel huge on me.

I'd go for the bigger size in the caviar's Mines.. The vintage gazelles fit true to size mate, go for your regular supe size..

I my experience the caviars fit just like any other SS vintage (and most other SS too) so if I was you I'd buy it in the Superstar size you usually wear. And if that's a US 11 I'd wait until the right size comes up. If you buy a pair cheap, but the size is wrong, you would just have wasted your money. Best thing to do would probably be to find a pair of vintages in a shop and try on for size.

In general I take a US 10 in all soops which is a good fit with a tiny bit of room to move.
I have one pair of US 9.5 and they are an exact fit but hurt my feet if I wear them all day.
I also have heaps of 10.5's which still fit good but have more room in them.
The only kicks where I've had to get 10.5's is my Lee Quinones because the 10's kill the back of my feet-
I only wished I knew that before I snapped up my US 10 Underworlds because they feel the same. Sad

i'm good in a 12 in all models bar ultras. i can squeeze down to 11.5, but depending on the shoe i might not be able to wear them all day. unfortunately my UP's fall into this category so if anyone wants to trade their 12's...

my caviars are a US12.5 and are a bit big, but not sloppy enough that I get heel rub. And I've got a pair of promodel vins that are 12.5 and fit perfectly - the non snakeskin ones seem a bit smaller than the snakeskins.

Gazelles I've always worn a 12 in, same with stan smiths.

All these are US sizes, BTW.
